We almost had ours at Purple Cafe on the Saturday 10/30.  They are really great to work with and their space is pretty great too….Another place we looked into having at was Dahlia Lounge, they too were really great to work with and their $$ is pretty reasonable as well…

We have decided to have our rehearsal dinner, Out of Town guest reception after the dinner, and brunch all at the Hotel where our guests are stayin, The Alexis Hotel – go figure everything there is much more $$…

My Maid/Matron of Honor did hers at Ivars on Lake Union. We grew up with Ivars so it was awesome. They had a big room and buffet, and it was quite nice (very classy).

We’re thinking about Ivar’s or Eastlake Bar & Grill.  At Eastlake, you can reserve the whole top deck with an awesome view of Lake Union.

We did ours at Tutta Bella Wallingford. They have a little room off the side of the restaurant. We had a ton of pizza, salad, alcohol and deserts for around $600 for 30 people. It was exactly what we wanted and all our guests loved the food. Good Luck!

We had our rehearsal dinner at Wasabi Bistro. We had the whole backroom and there were no “minimums.”

Hey Miss Root, I missed this post when you put it up (sorry!) but the Future In-Laws have selected Lucia for our rehearsal dinner. Jackie-o, we considered Dahlia Lounge and Purple as well! All three places have great setups and deals for private gatherings like a rehearsal dinner. Lucia looks beautiful, just upscale enough to feel nice, and delicious, and Future Mother-In-Law was sure to mention the awesome beverage packages they offer, hooray! Bonus that it’s crazy close to our venue and the OOTers’ hotel. We’ll have the whole upstairs loft, which should be perfect for our group of 30-40ish.

@JenniB Oh Volterra is quite tasty, nice idea if Ballard is convenient for you. I’m lucky enough to live withing walking distance. 🙂

We had a large family dinner at Chiso a couple of years ago, and they were fabulous to us.  We also like Serafina for large family dinners.  We didn’t have our rehearsal here, so I can’t speak to that, but I come from a big family so every family dinner is basically a rehearsal dinner!

Volterra is nice, a bit hit or miss for us as Foodies.  The one thing I remember about the place is that it is tiny! So don’t expect a lot of room.

We are doing our dinner at Sazerac at Hotel Monaco in DT Seattle.  We love the New Orleans’ style and atmosphere.  Very hip and cool.

And the crab cakes at Sazerac are to die for!
